We have just returned from a buying trip and are so happy to come back to packages waiting for us to unpack :) It was so great to be in person again - working with many of the designers we know and love - seeing faces, seeing pieces in person, trying them out, hearing stories, finding new lines and all the things that goes along with that. The experience is irreplaceable and we hope it can continue safely through the year. We will see! We cherished every second.
We are busy now unpacking all our new arrivals. So far we have unpacked more of the wonderful gingham napkins, Riess enamelware (yes, finally colanders are back!! We have been waiting about 6 months for these) and the beautiful waffle rib pieces in the photos above. The waffle rib tees and cardigans are made in Japan on rare vintage circular knitting machines. These machines allow the designer to combine waffle knit with rib knit, all the way around with no side seams. There are the cardigans above, long sleeve tees and turtlenecks. Each style comes in black and white. They are all great for wearing year round and especially in the transitioning months ahead. They are made of a substantial weight cotton - the texture and weight combine for a breathable, comfortable layer. We love the detailing around the neck and hems - a slight ruffle at the edges is so sweet. The cardigans and long sleeve tees are now in our wardrobe section. The turtlenecks will be coming soon :)
